Day 01: 19th November 2013 Mumbai - Guhagar Starting our ride early in the morning, we will follow the NH17 route from Mumbai to Goa, with our hunger-panged stops at Panvel, Vadkel Naka, Mahad, Poladpur, Khed, and Chiplun before we finally reach Guhagar by night. The ride, as we have been experiencing the past two years of Rider Mania, is a beautiful and scenic ride along the coast. So before we even know, the first day will come to an end as the sea breeze sweeps us on our ride on the bullets!

Day 02: 20th November 2013 Guhagar - Malwan Crossing the spots of Tavsal, via a ferry ride to Jaigadh, and then riding via Ratnagiri, Mogare Junction, ferry ride through Amberli Bridge, crossing Devgadh, Dabhole, Wayagani and then we'll finally reach Malwan by the time the sun sets on our second day. With a number of ferry rides interjecting our bullet ride and a few confusing roads, the second day proves to be the most interesting and adventurous day of our trip!

Day 03: 21st November 2013 Malwan - Goa While Malwan is the hidden paradise, we will finally reach Goa on the third day of our trip. Hitting the Malvan Kasal Road, we'll be passing by Kudal-Vengurla and will finally have a smooth ride on the tarmac road of Edapally-Panvel or the Mumbai - Goa Highway. We will be passing by Sanquelim, Velguem, Surla, and Usgao, and after about 30 km we will halt around Dharbandora and Dabal villages for a quick bite before we finally reach our destination. We reach Goa in the day and eagerly await for Rider Mania and the 3-4 days of extreme action and bullet adventure it promises!

A few of us are riding on our bikes from Delhi to Goa. We head out coming Monday. Hopefully, we should see some of you in Goa for the India Bike week/ Indian HOG rally. Anyone up for it?

Sudden bike rides and trips with friends are the best parts of life. There have been number of occasions when we have planned on Wednesday and left on Friday. The Mumbai to goa coastal route is a memory from the final year of my college which was during the initial days of my bike rides.

Is this an all boys trip organizing or something? We are a gang of girls who are bikers too. We love to go on long trips and would love to plan one along the Mumbai to goa coastal route. I think you guys can help us out plan the best one.

My best friend and I plan for a road trip together with our families every year and that is like the best time of the year for both of us from the time we were studying together. We had travelled once along the Mumbai to goa coastal route but planning to go the next year again.

Though not on bikes, I had been to this route on a road trip early this year and cannot praise the Mumbai to goa coastal route enough for the good condition. My trip included Vizag to Mumbai, including Auli, Aurangabad and a few more places and along with that Goa at the end.
